P Cubed: Pizza Pot Pie

A couple months ago I spent an afternoon making a giant batch of marinara sauce. Some of it was used right away for a pasta dish, the rest frozen for future meals. 
One such meal presented itself when we were flipping through the channels and caught an episode of Giada. These Pizza Pot Pies were just too easy to pass up so Bob took the lead and made it happen.

Serves 6
3 cups Tomato Sauce
2 cups diced roasted chicken
2 cups diced broccoli
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 lbs pizza dough (we pick ours up from Whole Foods or Trader Joes)
1/3 cup olive oil
Grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 400. Mix tomato sauce through pepper and transfer to individual sized ramekins. You can actually use any combination of ingredients you'd like - don't feel tied to the recipe! Add in cooked sausage, different cheeses, olives, mushrooms and more.
Roll out pizza dough and cut into circles that will cover the tops of the ramekins with about 1" extra on all sides. Because we did not have a large enough circular cookie cutter we used a bowl as our measurement and a pizza cutter to make the shapes.
Seal over the ramekins. Brush with olive oil and top with Parmesan cheese. Cut a small slit in the dough to allow the steam to escape.
Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes or until the crust is golden. Didn't these puff up beautifully? We quickly dug in with our forks!
Thanks Food Network!
